Sebastopol, CA—Your bookkeeping workflow will be smoother and faster with QuickBooks 2011—but only if you spend more time using the program than figuring out how it works. Quickbooks 2011: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly Media, $29.99 USD) puts you in control. You'll not only find out how and when to use specific features, you'll also get basic accounting advice to help you through the learning process.

"QuickBooks 2011 has a few new features that are really helpful," notes expert author Bonnie Biafore. "For example, if you send an invoice with the same content to many of your customers, batch invoices let you create one invoice and send it to as many customers as you want. And now, you can also use Web mail like Gmail or Yahoo! to send email messages to contacts."

And, Biafore adds, Quickbooks 2011 can help simplify your work day: "QuickBooks 2011 also has a streamlined EasyStep setup interview that doesn't make sales pitches for add-on extra-cost services. After you finish the interview, QuickBooks can provide handholding for setting up items, bank accounts, and other info in your company file. Several of the windows and dialog boxes, like Create Invoices and Enter Bills show a summary of the corresponding customer of vendor. You can see the balance for the customer or vendor and recent transactions."

Quickbooks 2011: The Missing Manual shows you all the important stuff you need to know, including how to:

  • Set up QuickBooks. Arrange files and preferences to suit your company.
  • Manage your business. Track inventory, control spending, run payroll, and handle income.
  • Follow the money. Examine everything from customer invoices to year-end tasks.
  • Find key info quickly. Take advantage of QuickBooks' reports, Company Snapshot, and search tools.
  • Streamline your workflow. Set up the Home page and Online Banking Center to meet your needs.
  • Build and monitor budgets. Learn how to keep your company financially fit.
  • Share your financial data. Work with your accountant more efficiently.
